    A couple weeks ago I made some venison summer sausage. I used a LEM Backwoods kit that made 10 lbs, 10 - 1 lb sticks. 4 were regular, 3 had cheese mixed in, and the other 3 had cheese and jalapeno mixed in. The jalapeno/cheese sticks were awesome, good flavor and no heat.

    Today I sliced off some and had some crackers and home made beer bread with it. Good stuff!

    Do you have to use high temp cheese in summer sausage or can you just use regular block cheese from the grocery store?

    Nice looking sausage!

    Thanks for the comments everyone!

    I didn't use high temp cheese. Instead I bought 2 8oz bags of Kraft Sharp Cheddar Crumbles, I found it at the grocery store along with the bags of shredded cheese. I couldn't find high temp cheese so I decided to try the Crumbles and I gotta say they held up really good.

    Cowgirl: I should have more fishing pictures this weekend. I'm going to drive up to Devils Lake after work today and do some shore fishing. Then Saturday it's supposed to be around 80 degrees so I'm taking the boat on the river again. Can't wait!

    Thanks Mossy!

    9manfan, I can't remember but it was between 6-8 hours in the smoker. Once it hit a plateau, somewhere around 145, it seemed like it wasn't going to budge but eventually did and I pulled them at 160 and tossed them in ice water.

    Those look real nice ole! I like the size of the cheese chunks, I'll have to look for the kraft crumbles. Thanks for the Q-view.
